It appears Tom Brady is taking Thanksgiving off.
Brady was absent from the New England Patriots’ practice at Gillette Stadium on Thursday with a knee injury. It’s the second consecutive practice he has missed, but the Patriots quarterback reportedly “should be fine” for New England’s game against the New York Jets on Sunday.
Special teams ace Matthew Slater was absent for the second straight day with a foot injury, while tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited in practice again. A report Wednesday claimed Gronk is not expected to play Sunday, however.
Here’s the full injury report:
